To that, I only have one reply; MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS! and before you draw the porn conclusion, forget it, I gave that up years ago!

Not drawing any conclusions...just curious. I know keygens and the likes are sometimes infected. My main experience with malware was when my relatives would install ActiveX Controls but that doesn't happen anymore since switching them to Firefox.

I'll post a new thread asking the question and see if can get some answers.

Don't you ever get spam emails etc? I used to but now I use Thunderbird, things have quietened down. Maybe I'm paranoid, but I've lost everything twice now and I'm firewalled, ant-virused and anti-spied up the ying yang!

I used to but not anymore. Haven't got a single piece of spam since I had the idea of making my email something like - 4xkty7dva@gmail.com. No spam program will guess that.

I do use a secondary email for forums, etc that get forwarded to my main email. If some unscrupulous webmaster sells his mailing list, I can just delete the secondary account. Easy to figure out who it was because GMail allows u to create unique addresses for each site you register on.

I too used Thunderbird but deleted it after I decided to just use the web.

Anti Virus protection (MSE)
Please, I have been using MSE for the past year or so but I'm starting to question it's reliability. My question is, compared to other free AV's how does MSE rate. Let me say that many free AV's come with bundled software that I don't care for. Does anyone have an opinion.
